2011 - the year of the forests - Wijma and FSC


The General Assembly of the United Nations declared 2011 to be the International Year of the Forests. In the wake of this, the Forest Stewardship Council published a book entitled ‘Celebrating Success:  Stories about FSC® certification’.

Using numerous examples from four continents, the book illustrates what certification according to the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council actually means – and how the local population, companies and the forest benefit from this. 

One of the 18 success stories involves Wijma Cameroun, our subsidiary in Africa, which was the first company in the Congo Basin to be awarded a FSC certificate.
